Here's the Scoop...

Literally. I found this wonderful large, hand-carved wooden scoop at a favorite thrift store recently. 

I don't have a clue what it was used for...but there's a stamp on the back that says it scooped something in Italy.

Maybe olives? Semolina or polenta? What do you think, Daniela? Any ideas?

On the flip side, this charming little jam & jelly pot was totally scoop-less. 

I love the lettering on this piece. The lid is intact, and there are no chips. It is not marked. This one will go to Etsy.

I found this other the same day - part of a set, I'd say. This mustard pot is for Hannah, but there was no lid with it. It won't need one - since a small fake plant will go inside it. 

Probably, a plant like this one I have in a topless ironstone sugar bowl in my middle bedroom. 

Since I have several topless sugar bowls, I should probably post about them like my buddy Donna...did you see her topless tureens?

Word for the Day:

James 3:11-12

Does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and salt water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, bear olives, or a grapevine produce figs? Neither can a salt pond yield fresh water.

I love that scoop. Maybe it scooped grapes for wine. I have an hand carved bowl that my dad made. It reminds me of that. You find the best treasures!
